YVONNE Moult had a fabulous birthday attending Lichfield open show where Debucher Zamba won BNSC and G1. The judge for both was Nicola Bailey.      As I write this the wind is picking up and storm Doris is thinking of heading our way.      Keep me update with any news you may have be...

THIS IS my first set of notes after the Christmas break and although it seems like an age since I hope you and your hounds had a fabulous Christmas and good luck to all for 2017.      First to recap on 2016, top GBGV was jointly claimed by Fiona Buchanan and Michael McLaren’s Ch/Ir Ch Tarmachan C...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grands - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

LKA WAS the last championship show of the season where Graham Hill had 26 hounds entered with two absentees. We were third in the ring but we’re not kept waiting an unreasonable amount of time.

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grand - week 50Updated : 09/12/2016

BY THE time you will read this Christmas will nearly be upon us and the show season for 2016 will be mainly over.      Two of our exhibitors have not been well, so best wishes to Yvonne Moult for the remainder of her treatment and Barbara Milton with getting her knee sorted.     ...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grand - week 48Updated : 24/11/2016

A BUMPER set of notes this week, starting with the BGVC show. For the first time in many years there were two rings with PBGV starting at 10.30am and GBGV half an hour later. Both breeds stopped for lunch after PB and there was a break in the proceedings. Even with committee duties of cleaning up I was away by just before 4p...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grand - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

WE HAD an extra hour in bed prior to setting off for Midland Counties as the clocks had gone back the night before, however it was a long wait for us to get in the ring as we were the fourth breed to be judged and our judging started at about 2.15pm.      Stuart Milner had a good entry without CCs of 1...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grands - week 41Updated : 07/10/2016

I ARRIVED at Driffield just after 7am on hound day to be greeted by a thick fog. In fact when the gates were opened and we drive on to the car park we could not see the benching tents let alone the parking attendants! I believe the fog lifted a little later on the day. However the following day when I was back it was a glori...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grand - week 36Updated : 01/09/2016

SKC HAD an entry of 16 minus three absentees for Marion Hunt to judge. Having driven up overnight I take my hat off to the Scottish exhibitors who do the journey most weekends. The weather was kind and the sun shone, so it was a shame that we were indoors.      An exciting first CC and BOB went to Pame...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grand - week 35Updated : 23/08/2016

A JAM-PACKED weekend of shows, first at a beautiful sunny Stafford for Houndshow where Jose Homem de Mello from Portugal presided over the Grands for the first time in the UK, although he has judged the breed many times elsewhere. He had an entry of 31 less five absentees and with GBGV being third in the ring.  &nbs...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grand - week 32Updated : 04/08/2016

THIS WEEKEND saw the calm before the storm of six championship shows in five weeks scheduling GBGV classes, five of which with CCs and as there were no results on social media I think most of us took the opportunity to have a weekend off.      That said I have been informed that the BGV championship sh...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grand - week 31Updated : 27/07/2016

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Grand - week 30Updated : 19/07/2016

A NON-CHAMPIONSHIP show weekend (well for GBGVs anyway, I still managed to slip in a Tibetan Spaniel breed ch show!) saw plenty of success at open shows and the sun shone for the weekend and as I write it is still shining.      At Alfreton, Sylvia Monaghan was doing the breed and the group. BOB and G3 ...
